Five Ways To Become A Better Shot From Brays Island Plantation

Shooting tips include:
1) Pack a shooting bag. Essentials include a towel, bug spray, sunscreen, hat, and even a snack to keep the blood sugar up during your round. Don't be afraid to leave the scorecard out and just work on a few troubling targets when out shooting with friends.
2) Develop a solid pre-shot routine. Practice a ritual every time you shoot, not just when keeping score or during a registered shoot. Consistency before you say "pull" will lead to greater consistency after you say "pull".
3) Two colors of shooting glasses can help increase your score. With some stations at Brays Island in open fields and others in hardwood bottoms, light changes drastically. To see all presentations, have a darker colored lens or sunglasses for the real bright stations and a light rose, purple or yellow pair for the ones with lots of shadows.
4) Change your chokes. When shooting, ensure you have the right equipment to be successful on the challenging targets at distance. While not all shooters change chokes frequently, it can help your results at end of the day.
5) BREATHE – this is one of our most frequently used phrases during a lesson because shooters usually improve their scores by simply taking a deep breath, relaxing and having fun.
